It was really nice to be in a program where we could openly talk about spirituality because it is a key to helping people's lives.

Our cohort really bonded and it seemed like we were all family because we really cared about each other and became good friends.

Why did you choose BYU's Social Work program?
The emphasis on clinical social work and the good reputation BYU has. I love BYU football as well, so that really helped.

Get an LCSW and work with women in substance abuse.

Tell us about your BYU internship experience(s):
My internship was absolutely amazing. I was apprehensive and nervous about my experience (Utah County Division of Substance Abuse) working with women and substance abuse, but it turned out to be a fantastic experience. It is something I would like to do once I graduate.
